There were a number of people on the trail when I hiked it mid-afternoon. The trail was easy to follow and well maintained. My only complaint is the road noise from I64. You may want to consider bringing your iPod on this one.
Nice moderate main trail. Upper trail adds on another level of difficulty. The biggest problem I had was with the leaves that covered the trail and made a few of the more difficult areas a little dangerous, but if you take those parts slow it's not too bad. Gorgeous trail in the winter, I can only imagine how amazing the view will be in the spring and summer. The very beginning and towards the end of the upper trail were tough in terms of elevation but the rest of the trail was relatively calm. I would definitely recommend this trail to beginners and experienced hikers alike!
